If your engine cranks "faster thAn normal," that is an indication that it has lost compression. That probably means that suddenly, the valve timing is wrong, since some valves are open when they should be closed, on compression strokes. Most likely, you have a defective timing belt, or timing chain. Since chains very seldom fail that way, (but it actually can happen), my bet is, the problem is a failed timing belt. Even if you can see action in the valves by looking through the cap where you add oil, that does NOT mean that that the timing belt is not bad, since many times, they fail by losing some ribs on the belt instead of breaking completely apart (which would stop all valve action)!

I would be looking at your spark plug first Jim and the only way the charcoal filter floods if you overfill your fuel tank, I have never had to replace the filter, just put it in the sun for a while and the fuel will evaporate, and stop filling your car at first cut off, not every drop you can get in

That must be the horn relay. Is it a white cube with 4 terminals? I would pull off the horn pad from the steering wheel and check the horn operation from there. Maybe a metal strip has come out of place or got bent and making horn work by itself.

If you have access to a MIG welder or someone who has one you can try this. Place a nut that is at least one size smaller than the bolt over the broken bolt and tack it in place on the inside of the nut. Build it up,from the outside of the nut into the center. This will ensure good contact between the nut and the broken bolt. Build it up until it's flush with the top of the nut. Then use a box end wrench or socket on the nut and turn it out. Usually the heat from the welding will be enough to help break the bolt free, but you may also have to apply some heat to the block area around the bolt to get it out. Hope this helps.

Yes, it's possible. but it's a very important and complicated job in which a lot of components will have to be:
1. replaced - the steering box and all the levers, the steering shaft and its joint;
2. modified - the mounting supports on the chassis for the box, the one the body for the steering shaft, the steering shroud and control levers attachment points;
3. added - the oil pressure pump with its pulley and reservoir on the engine, a mount and a new longer belt and the lines (fixed and rigid) to connect the pump to the steering box.
Because of the amount of parts and labor needed it will be very expensive to do it, over $3000.

When you google this, there is one item, and that was that the company logo or label did not appear on the horn button on the steering wheel. When I saw your question, I remembered this incident, but only slightly, so I went to Google and apparently it was much ado about nothing.
